DO NOT QUIT YOUR JOB After a Work Injury

One of the easiest ways to lose your workers’ compensation benefits and any chance of a settlement is for the injured worker to quit their job. Many people do not think this will affect their benefits.

Many people who are on light duty work or are not working at all because of their injury get sick of dealing with the stress and pressure they are receiving from their management and they quit. This is one of the worst mistakes you can make. You can lose all coverage and chances to recover anything from your case.

If you are under pressure or feel you aren’t being treated fairly by the management at the company, you should speak to a certified workers’ compensation specialist about how you can handle the situation, or how they can help you as a barrier between yourself, your employer and their insurance company.
